Dubnyk will work as the backup for Sunday's Game 4 in St. Louis after being scratched for the first three games, Peter Baugh of The Athletic reports.
Philipp Grubauer will remain the starter, but Dubnyk will likely become the primary backup moving forward now that he's gotten up to speed following a stint in the COVID-19 protocols. Dubnyk's return will push Jonas Johansson back into the No. 3 role.
Dubnyk (not injury related) has come off the COVID-19 protocols list, Scott MacDonald of Colorado Hockey Now reports.
Dubnyk stepped on the ice Monday since coming off the list, but he was not active for Colorado's 4-1 win over St. Louis in Game 1 of their playoff series. For now, Jonas Johansson is backing up Philipp Grubauer.
Dubnyk (not injury related) was able to participate in practice Monday, suggesting that he has cleared COVID-19 protocols.
Dubnyk still isn't expected to dress for Monday's series opener against St. Louis, but his return to practice will give him a shot at suiting up for Game 2 if he's able to get back up to game speed quickly. The backup goalie's last game action came on May 1.
Dubnyk (COVID-19 protocols) still isn't practicing Sunday, Adrian Dater of ColoradoHockeyNow.com reports.
Dubnyk's inability to practice suggests he won't be available for Monday's Game 1 against the Blues. Jonas Johansson should continue to back up Philipp Grubauer until Dubnyk works himself back into game shape.
Dubnyk (COVID-19) is expected to join the Avalanche at practice Saturday, Adrian Dater of ColoradoHockeyNow.com reports.
Dubnyk has been out nearly two weeks after testing positive for COVID-19 but could be back as early as Monday for Game 1 against St. Louis. The 35-year-old is 3-2-0 in five appearances since he was acquired by Colorado.
Dubnyk (COVID-19) has tested positive for the virus and will be out a minimum of two weeks, Mike Chambers of The Denver Post reports.
Dubnyk was placed in the NHL's COVID-19 protocol earlier Monday, and it's now confirmed that he will be missing time while battling the virus. Per Chambers, Dubnyk will quarantine in San Jose and return to Denver once he's healthy again. The Avalanche will likely roll with Philipp Grubauer and Jonas Johansson while Dubnyk is out.
Dubnyk was put on the NHL's COVID-19 protocols list Monday, Peter Baugh of The Athletic reports.
This move should rule Dubnyk out for Monday's tilt with the Sharks. Assuming Philipp Grubauer gets the starting nod, Jonas Johansson would likely serve as the backup. Dubnyk owns a 3.25 GAA and .886 save percentage in five games with Colorado this season.
Dubnyk stopped 22 of 25 shots in a 4-3 win over San Jose on Saturday.
Dubnyk didn't get to celebrate many victories while with San Jose this season, but he improved to 3-2-0 since being acquired by the Avalanche at the trade deadline. However, the veteran netminder has logged a sub-.900 save percentage in each of his last three appearances and now owns an .895 mark on the year.
Dubnyk will get the starting nod for Saturday's home contest against San Jose, Peter Baugh of The Athletic reports.
Philipp Grubauer stopped all 21 shots in Friday's win over the Sharks so Dubnyk will see some action for the second half of the back-to-back. The 34-year-old has seen mixed results in his four games since joining the Avalanche, going 2-2-0 with an .887 save percentage and 3.32 GAA. This will be his first game against San Jose since the team traded him in April.
Dubnyk allowed four goals on 25 shots in Wednesday's 5-2 loss to the Golden Knights. The fifth goal was an empty-netter.
Dubnyk had to play from behind almost immediately when William Karlsson scored 10 seconds into the game. Devon Toews tied the game later in the first period, but the Golden Knights took over for good in the second. Through 21 games, Dubnyk is 5-11-2 with a 3.21 GAA and an .896 save percentage between the Sharks and the Avalanche. With a back-to-back versus the Sharks on Friday and Saturday, Dubnyk has a good chance of playing at least one game against his former team.
Dubnyk will guard the road goal during Wednesday's matchup with the Golden Knights.
Dubnyk was a little shaky in his last start Saturday against St. Louis, surrendering four goals on 29 shots en route to a 5-3 defeat. The 34-year-old backstop will attempt to get back in the win column in a brutal road matchup with a scorching-hot Vegas team that's won nine straight games.
Dubnyk stopped 25 of 29 shots in Saturday's 5-3 loss to the Blues.
The final St. Louis goal was scored into an empty net. Dubynk got staked to a 2-0 lead just over three minutes into the first period, but he'd squandered it before the first intermission, and the Avs never led again. The veteran netminder took his first loss in three starts since being traded to Colorado, and joining a Stanley Cup contender doesn't seem to have lit a spark under Dubnyk, as he has a 3.04 GAA and .900 save percentage with his new team.
Dubnyk will defend the road net in Saturday's game versus the Blues, Peter Baugh of The Athletic reports.
Dubnyk won back-to-back starts -- both against St. Louis -- while Philipp Grubauer was in COVID-19 protocol, recording a .918 save percentage in the process. Grubauer has since been removed from protocol, but Dubnyk will make a third straight start anyway. The Blues sit 16th in the league with 2.82 goals per game heading into Saturday's clash.
Dubnyk gave up two goals on 27 shots in Thursday's 4-2 win over the Blues.
Dubnyk backstopped the Avalanche to a win that allowed them to clinch a playoff spot. The 34-year-old goalie has won both of his starts since he joined the Avs via trade from the Sharks. He has a 5-9-2 record with a 3.10 GAA and a .901 save percentage in 19 outings overall. He is likely to serve as the No. 1 goalie until Philipp Grubauer returns from the NHL's COVID-19 protocol.
Dubnyk will guard the road goal during Thursday's matchup with the Blues, Peter Baugh of The Athletic reports.
Dubnyk was solid in his last start April 14 against the Blues, stopping 31 of 34 shots en route to a 4-3 victory. The 34-year-old goaltender will attempt to secure a second straight win over the same St. Louis squad Thursday.
Dubnyk and the Avalanche won't play their next three scheduled games, per the NHL's announcement Friday.
Dubnyk won his debut with Colorado on April 14 versus St. Louis but will now have to wait until April 22 at the earliest to make another appearance for his new club.
Dubnyk stopped 31 of 34 shots in Wednesday's 4-3 win over the Blues.
Dubnyk bent but didn't break in the third period, maintaining the lead long enough to win in his Avalanche debut. The 34-year-old improved to 4-9-2 with a 3.17 GAA and an .899 save percentage in 18 appearances. His move to the Avalanche should be mutually beneficial -- Dubnyk's numbers should improve behind a better defense, and he gives his new team a more proven netminder than Jonas Johansson. Dubnyk may be starting a lot while Philipp Grubauer (COVID-19) is out.
Dubnyk will guard the road goal in Wednesday's game versus the Blues, Conor McGahey of Altitude TV reports.
Philipp Grubauer tested positive for COVID-19 and is expected to miss two weeks, so Dubnyk could have a hefty workload in store. He'll start with his Avalanche debut Wednesday. Dubnyk struggled with the Sharks this season, posting an .898 save percentage and a 3-9-2 record. His situation in Colorado will be better, though the Blues are heating up with three straight and 15 total goals in that stretch.
The Avalanche acquired Dubnyk from San Jose in exchange for Greg Pateryn and a 2021 fifth-round pick Saturday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.
Colorado is still trying to figure out its goalie situation behind Philipp Grubauer with Pavel Francouz (lower body) still out on a long-term basis. Dubnyk will provide a veteran presence as the backup and hope that a change of scenery helps him turn things around. He's sporting a 3.18 GAA and .898 save percentage alongside a 3-9-2 record and has lost his last four starts.
Dubnyk surrendered three goals on 26 shots in Saturday's 4-0 loss to the Coyotes. The fourth goal was an empty-netter.
Dubnyk didn't get any help from his Sharks teammates Saturday. This was Dubnyk's fourth straight loss -- in that span, he's allowed 14 goals. The 34-year-old dropped to 3-9-2 with a 3.18 GAA and an .898 save percentage through 17 games. Martin Jones has been better than Dubnyk lately, but a starting goalie for Monday's game versus the Wild has yet to be announced.
